As a naturopathic doctor and herbalist we strive to treat the whole person. What does this mean exactly?
Treating the whole person means we delve into the spiritual, physical, and mental/emotional components of each patient. The beautiful thing about being human is that we are all very much apart of the same fabric but every one of us has a slightly different attribute.
Part of our training as naturopathic physician and functional herbalist is that of a family medicine doctor. We can treat a variety of different health concerns such as general health and wellness, anxiety, depression, autoimmune disorders, eczema/psoriasis, thyroid disease (Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, Hashimoto’s, and Grave’s disease), pain management, food sensitivities, diabetes, adjunctive cancer treatments, and acute infections.
We do this with a toolbox of modalities such as herbal medicine, physical medicine, homeopathy, diet/nutrition, lifestyle modification, and in some states pharmaceuticals and IV medicine. At Of The Earth Wellness we believe there is a time and place for all things. At Of The Earth Wellness, we strive for balance, empathy, and non-judgement.
Meet Our Team!
Dr. Dave Hamilton
Dr. Dave received his doctorate of naturopathic medicine from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ. Dr. Dave co-owns a small urban homestead with an emphasis on “Food as Medicine”.
The farm is home to chickens, Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats, and bountiful raised garden beds. For the farm’s dedication to organic and sustainable practices, he was awarded the Paul C. Bragg Health Science Scholarship. The humbling and grounding nature of plants serve as a reminder that all things are connected. Herbs are a natural alternative to pharmaceuticals. Their long and well-established tradition of use and ease of assimilation by our given their similarity to food. Dr. Dave uses the energetic and medicinal properties of plants to enhance and individualize treatment to promote health and wellness.
By harnessing nature, healthy habits, and the body’s innate ability to heal itself he is able to individualize each patient’s journey toward health. Dr. Dave believes in creating a maintainable and sustainable approach to your health goals. He is flexible and will offer his recommendations based on your health needs.
Education is a huge component of medicine. The greek term “Docere” or “Doctor” means to teach. Dr. Dave takes the time to engage each of your health concerns to empower you with knowledge of yourself. Plant the seed of health and grow balance naturally!
Therapy dog and Livestock Guardian Dog
Kismet is our newest edition to the pack. She found her way home with Dr. Dave and Laura when the went on a trip to Turkey. She knew that they were gullible and with a little cohersion she could go from the street to a home. She now is the main clinic pup and will most certainly win your heart!
Rooted in the teachings of Edgar Cayce from age 6, Laura grew up in nature and an environment of natural healing. WWOOFing in the desert southwest juxtaposed ‘the familiar’ with scant resources, birthing a passion for interdependence, beauty and resourcefulness through permaculture, water harvesting, growing food and medicine. This began a decade long journey to self care, through hard work and passionate living, where botanical medicine has recently found heart.
As an empath, Laura is sensitive to our gentle natures, particularly those with varying intensities. She offers healing alternatives with gentle medicines, herbal teas, and identifying ways to create new routines for daily self care. Life is a practice. Create room for yourself.
She divides her time between a passion for photography, her dairy goat farmstead Wish We Had Acres (where she makes goat milk soap), her natural health clinic Of The Earth Wellness, and of course her five dogs.
What We Treat!
Hypothyroidism is one of the more common thyroid dysfunctions we see at Of The Earth Wellness.
Our gut is also home to a billions or even trillions of beneficial bacteria. However, if we mistreat our gut or if one is on chronic antibiotic use our guts can become dysfunctional. Creating problems with constipation, diarrhea, bloating, candida overgrowth, dysbiosis, leaky gut, IBS, Crohn’s, SIBO or any variety of concerns that arise.
The gut is the seat and gate keeper of our immune system, without it we are very susceptible to a variety of infections or problems.
